Charleston, SC (PRWEB) July 4, 2008
On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress ratified the Declaration of Independence, the document in which the Thirteen Colonies declared their independence from Great Britain and became known as the United States of America. Since that time, many U.S. veteran and military heroes have, and are proudly serving America, fighting for the freedoms that our nation guarantees, preserving our independence.
http://www.VetFriends.com -- the largest Web site reuniting and supporting U.S veterans -- encourages all Americans to honor and thank our U.S. veterans and military on July 4th and all year long.
"VetFriends.com cannot emphasize enough the importance of our veterans and military personnel, and what they mean to America. Spending time with family and loved ones, enjoying a film, sports event or show, walking through the park or beach, festivities on the holidays...whenever we take part in any of these wonderful things, our U.S. soldiers, both past and present hold a special place at our table, our 4th of July BBQ, in our huddle on the field, in our recollections and more," says VetFriends.com founder and U.S. Veteran Dale F. Sutcliffe.
In celebration of Independence Day, VetFriends will be taking up to 50% off all military pride items to show their appreciation to our veterans and military personnel.
